Sa edad na 89, binawian ng buhay ang Pilipinang manunulat, edukador at isa sa mha alagad ng panitikang Pilipino sa wikang English na si Paz Marquez-Benitez. Pumanaw siya sa araw na ito noong 1983.

Mula sa mga prominenteng pamilya nina Gregorio Marquez at Maria Jurado sa Lucena, Tayabas (ngayo'y Quezon province) si Paz Jurado Marquez, ipinanganak siya noong ika-3 ng Marso, 1894. Dahil mga g**o rin ang kanyang mga magulang, nais rin ni Paz na sundan ang yapak ng mga magulang niya. Tumuntong ng elementarya at high school sa Tayabas si Paz, at saka siya pinag-aral sa Normal School sa Maynila. Doon, naging varsity player siya sa larong basketball at sumali rin sa beauty pageant na naitampok pa bilang cover sa Renacimiento Filipino. Taong 1912 nang lumipat si Paz sa bagong tatag pa lang na University of the Philippines para doon tapusin ang kanyang education course.

Taong 1916, sa kanyang alma mater rin siya nagturo bilang instructor sa English Department, at habang nagtuturo ay nahubog na rin ng kanyang husay sa pagsusulat ng mga panitikan sa wikang English, mula sa kanyang pagkatatas sa pagsasalita ng English. Taong 1925, inilathala ni Paz ang kanyang unang maikling kwentong "Dead Stars", na umani ng mga pagkilala at naging inspirasyon pa sa mga sumunod na mga manunulat sa wikang English. Naging katuwang naman niya ang kanyang mister na si Francisco Benitez, ang dean ng University of the Philippines sa pagtatatag ng Philippine Educational Magazine, kung saan naglathala sila ng mga educational magazines para sa mga g**o. Bukod rito, itinatag rin ni Marquez-Benitez ang "Women's Home Journal", ang kauna-unahang pambabaeng magazine sa Pilipinas. Isa rin siya sa mga walong kababaihang Pilipinong nagtatag ng kasalukuyang Philippine Women's University.

Bukod sa Dead Stars, kumatha pa si Paz Marquez-Benitez ng mga akdang pampanitikan sa wikang English gaya ng "A Night in the Hills" at "Stepping Stones". Naging magkatuwang sina Paz at Francisco Benitez sa Philippine Educational Magazine hanggang pumanaw ang kanyang mister noong Hunyo 1951. Sa parehong taon rin nagretiro sa UP si Marquez-Benitez, at namuhay na lang ng pribado kasama ang apat na mga anak at mga apo niya, hanggang pumanaw siya noong 1983.
